is that it is not always going to be cheap. once people start paying highway taxes like you do for gasoline, that is suddenly going to get more expensive. already you cannot recover your cost of those conversions. certainly do not need all us to pay for those conversions. the problem will be solved in the marketplace, particularly with what is available to us as a resource base today. and that is our own production. one other factor a lot of people miss, besides a wealth creation and all of those things, a big one is that the psychological benefit of us not being under the thumb of opec any longer. the american public likes to be independent. we like to be free. suddenly we can be free from what we have been under for 50 years. the psychological impact of that is huge. >> i have always thought the the impact of oil on american middle east policies was understated. there is an episode where he is looking at the equipment and the people and investment and he says, it costs a lot of money to steal oil.

with a biased media and to concentrate all power on the central government in washington with the tax and spend liberals. everyone of those phrases is contemporary. it is and attitude for more than a judgment that shuts us off from accurate history and from their promise of democracy. i am hoping this issue focusing on race and people's resistance to discuss race, to insist that race is salt and it is unsolvable -- is solved. they're both mean we do not need to discuss it. this issue discusses it. when we do discuss it, when we learn things, that is when good things happen. that is the doorway to the promise of freedom. america is still not there yet. i hope we can take advantage of this time. we're marching through these 50- year anniversaries. bring our history back into balance and address the problems of the future with intelligence and with patriotism. thank you.
